Many companies are facing a situation where their current HPC hardware has become unsupportable. The company that produced it has either discontinued support or exited the market, or simply stopped making proprietary components, leaving a business with a very expensive "brick." Enter Scalable Informatics, a solid HPC solutions provider. With their new hardware trade-up program, companies can trade in their old "clunkers" for "cash" -- or at least a substantial discount -- on services and new equipment built on highly supportable, open standards.
